New fan group Unita Fortior said a "line in the sand" must be drawn after five of their members were elected to the board of Carlisle United's supporters' trust.

The UF candidates all attracted more votes than existing CUOSC figures in the trust's elections as part of their latest AGM.

It means a dramatic influx onto the board of the trust by the group who formed in January to try and increase membership numbers and make CUOSC more "representative".

It also comes after a war of words between UF and some senior CUOSC figures, who have branded the fledgling group a "Trojan horse".

UF have now issued a statement after the CUOSC elections, saying they intend to work together with those already on the board.

They have also said they will now "retire" the UF social media accounts.

They underlined that their sole initial aim was to increased CUOSC membership before five of their number decided to stand for election "for reasons you are all aware of - and old ground we won't revisit".

"Following the election period, we have all been voted onto the board of CUOSC," the statement added.

"We thank you for your support, both for ourselves and the project as a whole.

"Now is the time to draw a line in the sand and look to the future.

"That is working together with those already in place on the board, to help make CUOSC a modern, vibrant entity, representing the entire CUFC fanbase, whilst providing a voice for you, the Blue Army.

"We will now be retiring the Unita Fortior social media accounts."
